Dear iD family and guests,
I wanted to take a moment to write to you in my own words, in light of the recent developments surrounding summer camps and Coronavirus.
In short, WE CAN OVERCOME THIS! Should we dare to be optimistic? Yes!
For many of us who are now working from home, or who now have our kids at home all day, our everyday lives have been drastically altered. But, imagine a month or two from now when things start getting back to normal and we can all breathe a collective sigh of relief. We’re going to get through this! It will feel so good.
Here are a few things I know:
Summer will be a bright spot, a North Star. Every year, summer starts in June. Our kids are going to need places to play, places to get away from the house for a while, to socialize, to feel free, to learn, to make friends, and to unleash pent up energy. For the many families who are scaling back on spring activities or who are cooped up inside right now, summer can’t come soon enough.
Let’s also remember that there is a lot to look forward to. Just one month after Apple shut down its stores in China, those stores have now reopened, per Reuters. And Disney Shanghai is now coming back online, per USA Today. The improved trends will slowly work their way across the globe. The optimist (and realist) in me knows that summer camp will be bigger than ever. More needed than ever.
No matter what, our kids will need to stay busy this summer. Staying home will not be an option. Our kids will need to learn, thrive, and be active this summer. I feel very lucky that my company has the opportunity to be a bright spot for your family and for tens of thousands of kids who might feel a little trapped or down right now. We will deliver the very best tech experiences on the planet to each of our students, whether you choose an on-campus summer experience or Online Private Lessons.
